WILD HOGS

Thank you so much for the Bible. It’s so much easier for me to understand.

Now as for wild hogs, they’re all over Florida. I’ve been hunting them since a very young age, not much deer meat even though I’ve learned to track them at a young age as well and only hunt one if the elders ask me. I’m Mississippi Choctaw of the Rattlesnake People, representing the Eastern Diamondback Rattlesnake and born and raised in Florida and Mississippi. Now I just live on the Choctaw reservation in the Pearl River community where I’ll be going back to.

Yes, the power of Jesus is great and people should use it more often. There were times when I would make my “Deals” with the Great Spirit and never follow my end and this is where I’m at now. In my heart, I believe the Devil helped put me here [in prison] and our Great Spirit is holding my hand through it. Life is looking better for me!

My kids don’t write much as they have their families to worry about. When they do write, I see what I’m missing out there. My grandchildren write me too and that always brings tears to my eyes cause they’re always saying, “Grandpa when you coming home. I love and miss you.” I can’t wait to see them and I never ever wanna come back here again. I love and miss my family too much.

SOON RELEASE!

I am an inmate in Walla Walla, Washington. I am also a husband and father to a six-year-old son who is eager to see me. My release date is in October ’17!

My purpose in writing is you advertised a book on Christian fatherhood. I have recently come back to Christ. He now fills my heart and soul.

On my release, my pastor and I are going to work on getting me ordained. I know I am called to preach the Word of God. I am a registered Ogala Sioux from Pine Ridge. I have no money to work with, so I’m asking if you could send me this book to help me grow into the man God wants me to be.

—P.W., Washington
